Meditation on Micah 6:8

Micach 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good;
A God of faithfulness is He...without iniquity, just and upright is He. (Deut 32)
He is Good.  His mercies never come to an end. (2 Chron 5)
It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord. (Psalm 92)
and what does the LORD require of you fear the LORD God,
to walk in all His ways,
to love Him,
to serve the LORD God with all your heart and all your soul,
to keep the commandments and statutes of the LORD,
which are commanded for your good? (Deut 10)
The sacrifices of God are
a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart,
O God, you will not despise.  (Psalm 51)

but to
do justice,
execute  fairness -

bring about conformity to God's standards

and to
love kindness,

take great pleasure in tender compassion
and to
walk humbly with your God?

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.   (James 4:10)
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo,
I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)
